Oh I've loved this one ever since I first saw it!

Er. Actually, I can't remember when I first saw it. I've had this video on my computer since January... I think a friend sent it to me. Has this been on your site or something, before this?

Well, anyway. Love it :>

Cool, thanks, was nice seeing that again (had previously just seen it at your gig(s?)). Real Tuesday Weld + trumpets (+ monkeys) = sublimeness. Hope the next album is coming along well, hopefully for this year?

& if you click on my name/blog of stories, you can scroll down to the 12th August 2004 where you wrote me a story at the first gig we saw you- a freebee at the Whitechapel Art Gallery.

We're looking forward to seeing Dreams That Money Can buy again (on floor cushions this time!), and another gig sometime soon we hope.

Braaazzziillll.

yes, for various reasons, in the end, we couldn't put this out as a record so its nice for it to finally get an airing - don't know where Stella got hold of a copy tho...........

more from alex soon

see you at the Tate I hope - shoudl be amazing - they have a Miro puppet show dutring the day and all sorts off strange monkey business going on....

paulo said...

Aww that's a shame if it's not going to be released. Will you put it on your site as a music download at some point?

Looking forward to more monkey business.

There's something very touching in these characters of mr. Budovsky. I hope that this poor little monkey will survive in Iceland...

The monkey wont play for me. Which is very sad. Why wont the monkey play for me? It must not know how pro-monkey I am.

cheers-

I first saw "Bathtime" at one of Nik and Nancy's Ideas in Animation shows, so nifty to hear Nik playing on your version of the old standard!

Yes, they are great folks, and I miss them, but I know they're having a grand time in Belgium!

WOW--talk about a small world--I crashed on the Phelps' floor in the late 80's a couple times when I worked the Dickens Faire with their sons....good times. Hadn't thought about'em in years--I wondered whatever happened to them.

BTW, you, sir, are the squeeziest thing since sliced toasty and small furry things...LURVE the music, lurve the videos, love your ponderings, even loved the book and am now salivating at the thought of the movie. I bow to you in reverent awe.

Hello,

Thanks for sharing the link - but unfortunately it seems to be down? Does anybody here at theclerkenwellkid.blogspot.com have a mirror or another source?


Thanks,
